• 48% growth YoY due to project deliveries and consumer confidence
• Strengthens commercial portfolio with 2 mn. sq. ft. of upcoming developments
Century Real Estate, a leading developer and one of the largest landowners in South India, today announced that it has achieved its highest ever sales and collections in FY22. With net sales growing 22% YoY, the company has registered a 48% growth in collections this year owing this increase to the record pace of construction in new projects, older projects nearing delivery, and strong consumer confidence.

The project has seen consistently high demand even with a price increase of 10% in Q4.
